by on October 5th, 2015

Happy Monday!

After a series of Verbal topics, the GMAT Avengers are now shifting gears—the upcoming session is aimed at helping you increase your Quant score. Make sure you join Rahul, Pei, and the rest of the group on Saturday, Oct 10 at 11:30am EST as they take on one of algebra’s trickiest question types, namely Inequalities.

In the meantime, here’s this week’s challenge problem for you to solve:

If x is not equal to 0, is |x| less than 1?

(1) x/|x| < x
(2) |x| > x

(A) Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.

(B) Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.

(C) BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.

(D) EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.

(E) Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed.

Let us know the answer in the comments section below! We will reveal the answer during the live Facebook session on Saturday. Make sure you RSVP now!
